Prospects

LMEC graduates will be prepared for a successful career as Economists/Econometrician in industry, research centers, international agencies, and for admission to the best PhD programmes worldwide, including the Unibo Ph.D. programme in Economics.

Starting from the academic year 2019/2020, LMEC offers a new track in Econometrics in addition  the traditional track in Economics. In both tracks, the extensive use of quantitative tools will underpin theoretical and empirical approaches, providing the students with the skills to undertake independent research projects, to understand and analyze major current economic issues and policies, and to act as consultant in private and public institutions. Graduates will be able to address - consistently with the specific skills acquired in the chosen track- challenges such as: forecast of macroeconomic and financial variables, the quantitative analysis of financial markets and financial decision making, the empirics behind the strategic behavior of firms and consumers, the evaluation of programs in labor markets, education and development.
